Nature’s Patchwork Quilt by Mary Miché
The book, which was sent to the newsroom of the Lake County Record-Bee, is being offered as an addition to the library’s non-fiction children’s books.
Miché and illustrator Consie Powell use the theme of patchwork quilts to explain nature habitats.
The book places emphasis upon interdependence of life.
David Mizejewski, a naturalist for the National Wildlife Federation, credits Miché’s book for “an excellent job introducing ideas such as adaptation and biodiversity in an easy-to-understand, age-appropriate way.”
Supplemental resources assist to identify the diverse animals, birds and plants depicted within these pages. Seeing them in vivid color may pique the imagination to know more.
Miché is a Lakeport resident. More information about Nature’s Patchwork Quilt is available from its publisher at www.dawnpub.com/our-books/natures-patchwork-quilt/.
